Welcome Spring

My time to host the challenge this week over at Crafty Cardmakers and the theme of this week's challenge is  "Spring". 

With any luck Spring is springing where you are, so we would love to see your Spring creations. Spring Colours will also be acceptable.

As usual anything you care to enter is fine, a card, scrap layout, mixed media piece or home decor, as long as it meets the theme.

For this challenge I made a card using a stamp fro Elizabeth Craft Designs called Birds and Branches.  To colour my card I used Copic markers, white Gel pen  and pencil crayons then added Pentart rainbow glitter and white Nuvo Crystal.   Drops. The sentiment is an old stamp from my collection by Studio G.

Thank you for stopping by and have a creative week. 
Remember to pop over to Crafty Cardmakers to be inspired by our talented design team.  Hope you will join our challenge.
